I hope you are all well today. I have been to hospital to see the rheumy. I haven't met him before ,so it was lovely that he was so nice. I had a very thorough examination with a scan of my joints. Well, my joints didn't show any fluid when scanned ,even though on looking at them he could see that they were very swollen, also that I was in a lot of pain. So he started to doubt the other consultants diagnosis of RA . He wants to go right back to the beginning and wait until all Humeria is out of my system,and then start again,because nothing works Preds. DMARDS ,Naproxen Or Humeria works. I think it was because he couldn't see any synovial fluid and my CRP bloods are okay,which is why he doubted the RA? He said that I have some type of inflammatory arthritis but not sure what?
He did say that my last lot of bloods showed that I am anemic and that my white blood cell count is down,so more tablets for anemia. I have also had my thyroid function test done because my symptoms suggest under active thyroid. Fibro. was also mentioned. So a lot to take in today.i will be going back again in four weeks for a review.
After hospital I brought myself a colouring book and some pencils . I thought I would join the colouring craze .I can't believe how some books are very expensive. I got mine from the works.
Anyway that was my day.
Take care everyone.
